Looks to be true. I started a new thread on that topic if anyone would like to contribute.
kentsmith9, the link you provided new thread on that topic does not exist.

As it turns out there already was a dormant thread on the topic. The thread Kentsmith9 started has been merged with the old thread

Searching for "missing bridge" and "missing bridge/overpass" results in "Create the page".

The "missing bridge/overpass" is explained in the When to Report wiki page.

Another search term for the "a" hotkey issue in WME would be the variants of [dim turn arrows].

I added a bunch of different "Dim" variations. Let me know if you think of any others, but if you only search for "Dim SOMTHING" it should find one of these for users to pick. When you type too many words in the search, nothing will come up. :(

That's a shame, though goggle will tell you use less keywords to get broader (better) results.

You can also try
Dim arrow(s)
Dim red arrow(s)
Dim orange arrow(s)
Dim green arrow(s)

Dimmed... With all the variations

It be interesting to see the search stats after a month or so, which ones get used the most and build off that for more options.

I added those and some of the combinations for Dimmed as well. Unfortunately we could go on forever creating combinations. I think we may want to focus on at least the one and two word phrases we can think of. Otherwise we will spend all our energy on creating redirects. :(

Of course anyone who is interested is welcome to also create redirects. Just use the format:
Code: Select all
#REDIRECT [[PAGENAME]]

Like:
Code: Select all
#REDIRECT [[Keyboard_shortcuts#Transparent]]

Note the underline does not matter.
